What is Stylage Dermal Filler Used For and What are the Side Effects?

What is Stylage?

Stylage is a range of hyaluronic acid-based dermal implants designed and manufactured by Vivacy Laboratories, a famous French pharmaceutical company specializing in aesthetic products.

These fillers are unique as they are processed via original InterPenetrated Cross-linked Networks, or IPN-Like Technology, to be highly viscoelastic.

These formulations are also integrated with mannitol or sorbitol, antioxidants that scavenge oxidising agents effectively in order to maintain good skin health and filler performance, and curb post-injection swelling for shorter patient downtime.

 What are Stylage dermal fillers used for?

The fillers above are categorized according to their function:

Skin Hydration and Biorevitalisation: Hydro and Hydromax are used to correct minor signs of aging like dullness and dehydration in areas like the back of the hands, face, neck and decolletage.

  • Lip Correction and Enhancement: Special Lips is perfect for subtly plumping thin and misshapen lips. This filler is resilient enough to withstand the movement of the lips while still adding volume.
  • Filling and Smoothing Wrinkles: Stylage’s S, M and L formulas are ideal for effortlessly plumping wrinkles ranging in severity from superficial to deep set. Some commonly treated facial lines include crow’s feet, perioral lines, and nasolabial folds. Minor facial features like nasal humps and earlobes can also be augmented non-surgically via this hyaluronic acid filler gel.
  • Facial Remodeling and Volume Restoration: XL and XXL are intended to augment and volumize gaunt areas, as well as sculpt facial contours.
